AHLT - A HOUSE LIKE THIS is a home fragrance and accessories brand based in South East London founded by James Burrow and Ky Ismet.


When James and Ky purchased their first property in South London they knew they would be taking on a big renovation project - but that had been the goal since they met in 2010. Sharing a love for monochrome style, graphic prints, dark interiors and an unhealthy obsession with home fragrance the boys documented each step of their house project via their @ahouselikethis Instagram. Once the dust settled (quite literally) on their home project they decided to launch their business venture, specialising in hand made luxuries for the home.

"We carefully blend the very best ingredients with a design aesthetic that conjures an experience of guilt-free luxury."

Ky, a musician turned digital marketing professional, began hand pouring soy wax candles in 2016 as gifts to friends and family. 

As AHLT’s first product to launch, the candle range is an evolution of Ky’s original handcrafted gifts that you can now buy and gift to yourself or others should you wish. Made from natural soy and the very best fragrance and essential oils to promote a strong scent throw, cold or hot. The AHLT signature candle range is fast growing in popularity and is well known for its clean burning of up to 45 hours and delightful signature scents.

James, a Graphic Designer and illustrator is the creative visionary behind AHLT. Inspired by original botanical drawings, vintage illustrations and more modern popular culture references James’s designs are sure to blend old with new. James has worked across majority of luxury and cult brands such as Vivienne Westwood, COS, Religion Clothing and I SAW IT FIRST. His passion for design is realised in his crafting of our digital presence and brand identity. Finally, his hand drawn and digital prints are one of a kind and will be ready to order from our website in Spring.

Thank you for visiting AHLT.
